ADDISON COUNTY — Summiting mountains is always easier with friends.

That’s the philosophy behind the Young Adventurers Club, an offshoot of the Addison County-focused Breadloaf Section of the Green Mountain Club.

Lauren Bierman took over as director of the Young Adventurers Club, or YAC, in 2016 with the intent of getting her young sons, seven-year-old Ty and five-year-old Sam, exploring Vermont’s mountains, woods, lakes and streams. She also hoped to burn some of their endless energy in the process.

MIDDLEBURY — As president of Middlebury College, Laurie Patton’s community work is guided by three principles. Or four, if you count the cauliflower principle.

“The cauliflower principle,” she said in an interview last week, “is that when I go to the store to get cauliflower, I have to be prepared for people to say hello, ask me what’s going on on some particular topic, and comment on what I’m buying.”

Posted on August 13, 2018 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



VERGENNES — While the Addison County Solid Waste Management District works toward a long-term replacement for the Vergennes recycling center, selectboards of three of the other towns that it serves have agreed to pay higher costs to keep the center open until the end of the year.

MIDDLEBURY — Most people who drive past the inconspicuous bookstore located two miles north of Middlebury on Route 7 would never guess what lies within.

“When people come in, they’re blown away,” said Timm Williams, who works in the store daily. “They say, ‘I’ve driven by for years and I never realized,’ and then they come in and they’re hooked.”
